We know that in any humanitarian crisis, women face unique risks. About one-third of the refugees crossing from Turkey to Greece, and then making their way across Europe, are women and children. Women face sexual violence and exploitation, and must deal with the lack of access to birth control and a full range of reproductive health services, including pre-and-post natal care. During our #WomenRefugeesWelcome delegation to the Balkans and Germany in November 2015, we were proud to put women refugees on the map. Stay tuned for our new report that takes stock not only of the many challenges facing women refugees—but also of the women’s organizations working to support them. In the meantime, Amnesty International and UN Women have released reports that
detail the experience of women refugees along the route.
